What to Expect
Begin your day with a convenient pick-up in central Tokyo and then head by bus to Meiji Shrine, the city's most popular Shinto site. Here your guide fills you in on the fascinating history of feudal Japan. Keep an eye out for the shrine’s larger-than-life torii, or Shinto gates—some of the tallest in the country. From there, cruise past the Japanese House of Parliament on your way to the Imperial Palace East Garden, the sprawling lawn of an Edo-era castle. Browse the souvenir stalls along Nakamise Shopping Street before getting a peek at Tokyo’s oldest temple, the 7th-century Buddhist pagoda of Senso-ji (aka Asakusa Kannon). Enjoy a tasty lunch at a garden-side restaurant before setting sail on Tokyo Bay, where you can admire the city’s neon-filled skyline during a scenic cruise. The tour concludes in central Tokyo.

It was a decent tour, hitting the important spots. Our guide Yuko was very nice. The Meji shrine is nice, but there isn't much to see and the tourist crowds make it difficult to experience any sort of serenity. The Imperial Garden stop was a bit confusing....get off the bus,

We didn't have much time while in Tokyo, but the tour gave us a good feel for the city, and set us up for the next day of exploring. The start was a little confusing at the Bus Terminal, but once we located the starting point, the rest of the day was organized and flowed well.
